Good pizza

It's not New York Pizza but it was very good. We ordered a supreme medium size and it was enough for two people

We have eaten here several times and the food has always been great. We love the outdoor seating when the weather is nice and they have great pizza. I have only tried two of the pizzas, one was the kitchen sink the other was bacon, chicken, ranch and they are both great. I have also had the spinach artichoke dip... More

12 of us golfers stayed at the cabins At Lake Blackshear, and The Cove is just outside the main entrance. We ordered pizza one night which i went and picked up. I ordered 6 pizzas, with a variety and they were excellent, but surprisingly a little bit on the high side, price wise....but it is worth the money. Get the... More

We were down at the lake enjoying time on the boat and didn't want to actually "go out" to eat. We called in to The Cove and ordered two pizzas for our crew. Fifteen minutes later we were picking it up from them and taking back on the boat. It was a great sunset dinner on the boat eating WONDERFUL... More

We go to The Cove often, first, we love the owners! It is amazing what they've created, a fun family atmosphere with great food! Can't go wrong with anything you order, but I especially love the Frito Loco! stuffed fried burritos with whatever you want to put in them! Delish :)

I love a few miles from the Cove, so it is my go to pizza place. The pies are always fresh and delicious. Their crust is not to thin or thick and is never over bearing. The salads are delicious and the staff is attentive. Very neat dining area with both inside and outside seating.

We were staying at a hotel right off I-75 and wanted a "home town" meal, not a chain. An internet search turned up The Cove at Lake Blackshear. Wow are we glad we decided to make the drive (about 20 minutes from our hotel). We had a great time and the food was delicious! Cold beer (bottle only, no draft).... More

We were staying nearby, so went on a food hunt. The Cove is one of those local places where the neighborhood people seem to go. The ambience is bare bones, but clean. The pizza was excellent. We should have ordered a medium, though, as the large was enormous.
